Jackson vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m., YES Network and MLB Network

WEATHER: For now it looks like things have cleared up enough to play, but it could be iffy all night. It rained off-and-on much of the afternoon.

UMPIRES: HP Gerry Davis, 1B Sam Holbrook, 2B Greg Gibson, 3B Todd Tichenor

HOME SWEET HOME: The Yankees have not lost a home series this season. They’ll need a win tonight to keep that streak alive.

AND NOW IT’S CC’S TURN: In the past four games, the Yankees starters (Garcia, Burnett, Nova, Colon) have each held their opponent to one earned run or less for a combined ERA of 0.95 through 28.1 innings. The Yankees had a stretch of four straight starters giving up one earned or less last year, and it involved an entirely different group of starters (Pettitte, Hughes, Vazquez, Sabathia).

HITTING A WALL (OR NOT HITTING AT ALL): The Yankees have been held to six or fewer hits in three straight games, matching their longest such streak since the start of the 1993 season. They’ve had a streak like this 16 times in that span.

UPDATE, 7:48 p.m.: Three scoreless from Sabathia. He got in a little trouble in the first and second innings, but he’s escaped every jam.

UPDATE, 8:05 p.m.: Four straight walks gave the Yankees a 1-0 lead in the third. Robinson Cano followed with a sac fly and now it’s 2-0. Pretty good at-bats leading to those walks, but still, Ozzie Guillen isn’t known to hide his displeasure and I cant imagine he’s very pleased.

UPDATE, 8:13 p.m.: Kevin Millwood’s night is finished in Charlotte: Two innings, seven hits, six earned. Yikes.

UPDATE, 8:39 p.m.: The Yankees already had a 2-0 lead when Brett Gardner broke up the no-hitter with a solo home run to right, this third of the year. Eduardo Nunez followed with a double and Curtis Granderson tripled, and now it’s 4-0 Yankees in the fifth.

UPDATE, 9:01 p.m.: Gardner led off this inning with a home run. Now he’s hitting with the bases loaded, and the Yankees still haven’t made an out.

UPDATE, 9:07 p.m.: A six-run sixth has given the Yankees an 8-0 lead. The Yankees batted around before making an out.

UPDATE, 9:39 p.m.: Two mistakes by Chavez at first base tonight.

UPDATE, 9:53 p.m.: Nick Swisher can finally sleep easy tonight. His first home run of the season has given the Yankees a 12-3 lead in the seventh.

    Time for Sabathia to throw a gem and for the Yankee bats to light it up. Let’s go Yankees!

  2. Salliedogs7 April 28th, 2011 at 7:02 pm

    Go Yanks. Repeat last night.

  3. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    the bottom 3 of the line up are auto outs.

    CC set the pace 5 days ago for all strong starts that each starter has…hope he does the same tonight

  4. Irreverent Discourse April 28th, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    How come Nunez isn’t leading off? I thought he was good…

  5. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    Really?

  6. Irreverent Discourse April 28th, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    No, not really… come on give me some credit.

  7. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    Good broadcast team on mlbbetwork.

  8. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    Yea sure hands are overrated alright….

  9. Nick in SF April 28th, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    See you in June, Nunez. :mad:

  10. West Coast Yankee Fan April 28th, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    Not a good start.

  11. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    1 out with man on 1b if Jeter is playing….

  12. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    1 out with man on 1b if Jeter is playing….

    We don’t know if he would have been able to range over to get that ball

  13. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    Jeter doesn’t make that play everyone gets scolded for how hard it is hit.

  14. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    some of it is on cc. both those balls were smoked.

  15. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    The concept of sample size is completely lost on Kay.

  16. West Coast Yankee Fan April 28th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    Good play A-Rod.

  17. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    Great play by Alex and great decision making as usual from him…

  18. Salliedogs7 April 28th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    Smart play A-Rod.

  19. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    Overly aggressive 3B coach.

  20. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Alex made that play because he wants Nunez to play everyday. :)

  21. Irreverent Discourse April 28th, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Hard hit is a fine excuse, when it’s between your legs it’s tougher…

  22. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    April 28, 2011 at 7:13 pm Jeter doesn’t make that play everyone gets scolded for how hard it is hit.
    -

    Problem is that Jeter makes that play.

  23. West Coast Yankee Fan April 28th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Good job CC.

  24. Salliedogs7 April 28th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Way to get out of jam CC.

  25. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Hard hit is a fine excuse, when it’s between your legs it’s tougher…

    It didn’t go between his legs under it bounced hard off the dirt and up into his chest. Then fell down between his legs :)

  26. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    According to Horrible Hawk, CC and Dunn are good friends.

  27. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Problem is that Nunez doesn’t play everyday…or almost any day.

    Seriously, it’s one chance.

  28. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    no harm….
    costas and kaat are easy to listen to.

  29. West Coast Yankee Fan April 28th, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    An error – big deal. It happens to everyone.

  30. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    Problem is that Jeter makes that play.

    You arguing that Jeter makes every play hit to him?

  31. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    I’m the first one to say that Jeter is having a subpar season so far, but no way should Nunez be the everyday SS. He shouldn’t even play half the time. His job is to spell Jeter when Derek needs rest. That’s it.

  32. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    Great job by CC getting out there…Alex gave him the opportunity and he took advantage.

  33. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    This very season, Jeter got eaten up by a similar ball and I got scolded for it.

  34. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    Jeter isn’t even playing and we gotta hate on the man. No need for Jeter comments at all today basically unless he comes in the game

  35. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    Of course, Jeter’s was ruled a hit :p

  36. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    “You arguing that Jeter makes every play hit to him?”

    he makes less errors than just about every other SS….he has very sure hands on routine plays

  37. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    I wish I could watch the MLB Network broadcast, but it’s blacked out because I’m in Chicago.

  38. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    yanks going to tee off tonight.

  39. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    he makes less errors than just about every other SS….he has very sure hands on routine plays

    -

    How many SS’s are making errors on routine plays? How many errors come on plays Jeter can not make at all? How many errors has Jeter been saved by Tex?

  40. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    “he makes less errors than just about every other SS….he has very sure hands on routine plays”

    Well, let’s be honest. Some of his throws to first of late have been adventures. Tex has saved him a few errors with his fielding.

  41. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    I’m not killing Nunez for the record…..that wasn’t an easy play….it was a tough hop but he let it play him. He’ll probably make the rest tonight and maybe he’ll even get to a ball Derek wouldn’t and make LGY and JF’s night.

  42. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    Sorry, Nick – you swung on that.

  43. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    “Jeter isn’t even playing and we gotta hate on the man. No need for Jeter comments at all today basically unless he comes in the game”

    I don’t see any hate.

  44. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    How many errors is jeter saved by barely getting to a ball that other SS’s field cleanly and making a weak attempt at a stop or throw, and thus the attempt is graded a hit where for other SS’s it’d be an error?

  45. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    Every 1b saves every SS of throwing errors on occasion.

  46. Irreverent Discourse April 28th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    jerkface – yes but what i am referring to is how he played the ball. if it was hit hard to his side and he had to “ole” it, that’s way more excusable. the ball was played between his legs without taking as much as a step after the ball was batted, back of the dirt so no dead hop… that’s just bad.

    I don’t care, I don’t think any less of him for missing one play.

  47. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    Speaking of veteran players, where’s Damon when you need him? Dude would have found plenty of PT here this season.

  48. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    Cano is in swing mode.

  49. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    Horrible Hawk has a man crush on Robbie.

  50. Benny Blanco April 28th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    303 obp?? Cano, take a walk some time. :)

  51. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Every 1b saves every SS of throwing errors on occasion.

    The same amount? Or are some 1B better than others?

  52. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    White Sox pitching is killing our bats

  53. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    if it was hit hard to his side and he had to “ole” it, that’s way more excusable.

    So you’d excuse Jeter for not getting infront of a ball but scold Nunez? K.

  54. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    “Speaking of veteran players, where’s Damon when you need him? Dude would have found plenty of PT here this season.”

    I think you and I (and Erica) agreed on Damon this winter.

  55. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    “Speaking of veteran players, where’s Damon when you need him? Dude would have found plenty of PT here this season.”

    He plays everyday in TB, doesn’t he? That’s what he wanted.

  56. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    “The same amount? Or are some 1B better than others?”

    most are good at picking throws in the dirt to be honest.

  57. YankFanCA April 28th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    It’s not White Sox pitching that’s doing it; this team has way too many players in major slumps.

  58. Nick in SF April 28th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    Damon leading the Free World in walkoff RBIs this season, as per Rangers broadcast today.

  59. Captain Clutch April 28th, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    It’s amazing how over anxious everyone is in the lineup. Cano has to stop swinging at pitches out of the zone and Swisher swinging at ball 4. These guys swing at anything their bat can reach. Swish definitely needs a game off.

  60. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    most are good at picking throws in the dirt to be honest.

    Jeters errors have decreased drastically since Tex came on board. Perhaps he has gotten worse range wise and thus is not reaching balls that were more likely to become errors then.

  61. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    Jeter doesn’t even come close to that ball.

  62. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    Jeter is in the dugout waiting for Soriano to field that grounder.

  63. 4 NYY April 28th, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    # Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    Of course, Jeter’s was ruled a hit :p

    —————————————-

    And I rule your comment as a hit with an S in front !

  64. Pat M. April 28th, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    Give it a rest Jerkface…..Do you argue about everything in the real world ??? If you do you’re a lonely guy

  65. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    “I think you and I (and Erica) agreed on Damon this winter.”

    He needs a better agent.

  66. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    It’s not White Sox pitching that’s doing it; this team has way too many players in major slumps.

    Team wide slumps happen. I can remember when the Yankees went to Colorado in 07 with very favorable matchups in a hitters park and came out with 5 runs across 3 games.

  67. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:30 pm

    CC not sharp so far tonight.

  68. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:30 pm

    Give it a rest Jerkface…..Do you argue about everything in the real world ??? If you do you’re a lonely guy

    This argument doesn’t make sense, because if I am arguing in real life it means someone is engaging me in discussion.

  69. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    “Jeters errors have decreased drastically since Tex came on board.”

    he saves him a few….however considering that Giambi was the 1B before him how do we know that he didn’t cost him more than the average 1b would have. Basically you exchange a bad 1B for a good one then you’d expect errors to go down… Perhaps Jeter would’ve had less errors before Tex came if they had had an average defensive 1B

  70. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Giambi was very good at scoops though.

    “Jeter doesn’t even come close to that ball.”

    lol….please

  72. Pat M. April 28th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Nunez let the ball play him, E-6….Rather routine play

  73. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    There could be a problem with the ball tonight…

  74. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Giambi’s problem was throwing to 2B; not so much picking low or bad throws.

  75. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    “Giambi was very good at scoops though.”

    no he wasn’t….he was merely better at that than the rest of the position because he didn’t have to move

  76. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    no he wasn’t….he was merely better at that than the rest of the position because he didn’t have to move

    At the very least he was as good as the average 1st baseman at scoops.

  77. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    CC struggling a little bit

  78. Carl April 28th, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    Yankees can’t field!

    Cano, Grandy, CC, Nunez, Cano, Cano, Cano

  79. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    “At the very least he was as good as the average 1st baseman at scoops.”

    how do we know…..is that what your eyes told you ;)

  80. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    Wow, what was that guy swinging at?

  81. Bo knows April 28th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    Martin at work, just a little further out.

  82. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    “Martin at work, just a little further out.”

    He’ll make a fine teacher for Montero!

  83. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    nice comeback from CC

  84. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    Sweet. Runs!

  85. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    CC doing nice job of working out of trouble….hopefully he’ll start to settle in next inning.

  86. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    how do we know…..is that what your eyes told you

    Scoops are a tracked stat, but using any of my own visual based opinions won’t fly here because people like Pat M will simply dismiss them if they differ from their own. Better to use the cold hard logic of stats.

    Anecdotally, I think Giambi was not a detriment scooping at 1st. He just had zero range and threw like a girl.

  87. Salliedogs7 April 28th, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    Need a few runs.

  88. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    The White Sox would have been the perfect opponent had our offense not cooled down. They can’t score runs to save their lives. Real slump busters for the pitching staff.

  89. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    JF,

    anyway…Derek is sure handed as they come on routine plays and usually makes good throws as well, he gets a little too cute sometimes as most SS’s do and coasts one over there but it’s not a huge problem.

  90. 4 NYY April 28th, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    I said at the end of spring training that the Yanks were gonna have hitting problems.
    If not for the HR’s, where would we be ? ( plus Colon and Garcia )
    Unless Montero comes up and hits a ton, a hitter will be needed at mid-season. Or Chavez stays healthy and DH’s at some point. ( and continues to hit )

    Love Po, but how could they count on him as DH after year he had ? ( it was just a contract thing IMO)

  91. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    I said at the end of spring training that the Yanks were gonna have hitting problems.

    Please do not disparage the great derek jeter

    or the great Posada. Disgusting!

  93. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    Jackson does have nasty stuff….

  94. 4 NYY April 28th, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    Giambi was a fair, at best, glove.

  95. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    that’s seeing the ball well there by Chavez….he took some tough pitches there.

  96. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    That’s almost ridiculous.

  97. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    Jackson does have nasty stuff….

    Cooper has really helped him, he has mostly been inconsistent. And look at that. How can you get out of a slump if stuff like that happens

  98. blake April 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

  99. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    =========================================

    One of the all time great Yanks ! 1st. ballot HOF’er !

    Nah, you do that just fine, even when he’s not in the game ! Take a nap.

  102. rr212 April 28th, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    Without the long ball, they can not score. Hopefully they prove me wrong tonite. So far, not good. 2 quicks out here. Maybe some momentum.

  103. Pat M. April 28th, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    Face…..The Giambino was good at digging them out

  104. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    Why is the long ball viewed as a bad thing? I would argue that their HR makes the offense better and more versatile.

  105. Bo knows April 28th, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    Matin again, squared up on a 96 mph FB down and away. A total professional.

  106. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    Why is the long ball viewed as a bad thing? I would argue that their HR makes the offense better and more versatile.

    Hitting the ball hard is not playing the game the right way.

  107. YankFanCA April 28th, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    Look at the troika we are sending to the plate this inning!!!

  108. mick April 28th, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    He just had zero range and threw like a girl.
    =============================
    Now that’s misogynistic.

  109. rr212 April 28th, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    I don’t think its a bad thing, but would like to see them put an inning together without the long ball.

  110. mick April 28th, 2011 at 7:52 pm

    jorge is done…

  111. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:52 pm

    jorge is done…

    Give him until 2 years from now before we decide that.

  112. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:52 pm

    I can’t even remember the last time Posada got a hit. Wait, I think it was a HR in BAL, right?

  113. rr212 April 28th, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    And Gardy continues to fake bunt. Hey, they know u can’t really bunt!

  114. LGY April 28th, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    It would suck if Posada got old just one year after having to watch Jeter do it.

  115. mick April 28th, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    2 years from now jorge will be managing the mets

  116. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    that is about the only way Gardner is getting on base these days ;)

  117. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    “I don’t think its a bad thing, but would like to see them put an inning together without the long ball”

    You really don’t think that’s what they are trying to do the vast majority of the time?

  118. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    Let’s see if Nunez can hit the ball out of the infield.

  119. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    It would suck if Posada got old just one year after having to watch Jeter do it.

    And while both are on the same team in prominent roles! Jorge is going to the Hall of Fame.

  120. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    i’ll take it

  121. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    Gardy should steal 3B.

  122. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    now gardner doesnt have to worry about stealing

  123. mick April 28th, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    the longer jorge hangs around the more he hurts his hof chances

  124. rr212 April 28th, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    Take 3rd. Haha

  125. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    The home run has a weird stigma because there is like no defense against it, its a rare event (generally) and it clears the bases.

  126. LGY April 28th, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    Steal 3rd

  127. Carlo April 28th, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    Jerkface – we discussed this topic a lot earlier in the week. Whether we agree or not is not my concern, but I want to ask you a question.

    When you watch this offense, do you enjoy it? Do you feel like its a pleasure to watch? I ask because to me, its tough to sit and wait for home runs all game long.

  128. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    Rain drops keep falling on the Yankees’ heads!

  129. mick April 28th, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    jenny finch throws like a girl

  130. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    i like that suggestion from kaat.
    play only division games in april to avoid scheduling issues with weather, since they come back 3 times.

  131. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    Wow, how do you walk Gardy and Nunez? That’s some bad pitching.

  132. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    “jenny finch throws like a girl”

    And in the process, she’s raising the bar for girls everywhere.

  133. Salliedogs7 April 28th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    Not bad for the bottom of the order.

  134. LGY April 28th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    Nunie works a walk. Where’s ID? :D

  135. -Matt- April 28th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    Double play again

    It has to happen

  136. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    When you watch this offense, do you enjoy it? Do you feel like its a pleasure to watch? I ask because to me, its tough to sit and wait for home runs all game long.

    Right now? No. Because their line drives are getting caught and some guys are slumping. Difference is I think the Yankees will still lead the league in runs this year.

  137. Nick in SF April 28th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    Come on, Grandy, we want a sharp single!

  138. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    Kay loves traded-for matchups.

  139. rr212 April 28th, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    Rich…yes, I do, but I still would like to see it happen. Wouldn’t you? This is a great chance to do it.

  140. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    this is a pitcher the yankees should be driving up the pitch count against. essentially dont swing at anything until you have to…

  141. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    double steal!!!! I like it

  142. Salliedogs7 April 28th, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    Heads up Gardner.

  143. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    rr212

    It will.

  144. -Matt- April 28th, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    If Granderson gets on, that’s some insane speed on the bases

  145. rr212 April 28th, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    Love the speed out there.

  146. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    make him throw 2 strikes.

  147. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    I hope granderson makes a nice out here, just get 1 run on the out. No HRs please

  148. 4 NYY April 28th, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    # LGY April 28th, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    It would suck if Posada got old just one year after having to watch Jeter do it.
    =============================

    He only hit.248 last yr. after hitting .285 the yr. before.

    Nothing against him at all, just father time, I’m afraid.

  149. -Matt- April 28th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    I hope granderson makes a nice out here, just get 1 run on the out. No HRs please
    ————–
    God no, they wouldn’t want to get a hit this game

  150. Bo knows April 28th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    The long ball is a beautiful thing. It’s the overswinging to achieve the long ball that is the pits. Witness the A Rod swings the last inning as opposed to Martin. A Rod was just unreal at the plate at the beginning of the season, look at him now.

  151. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    this is where girardi wants grandy…in the leadoff spot

  152. Nick in SF April 28th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Now I want a walk to see the triple steal.

  153. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Nothing against him at all, just father time, I’m afraid.

    Yankee hater. Father time doesn’t touch Yankee greats.

  154. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    If I were Ozzie, I’d be tempted to put Grandy on and pitch to Swisher.

  155. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Jeter can at least leg out the infield singles.
    Not gonna happen with posada.

  156. Carlo April 28th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Swisher with the bases loaded doesn’t feel great. Time to break out.

  157. Salliedogs7 April 28th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Good eye.

  158. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    unfortunately the only way he makes a change is if someone gets hurt

  159. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    Girardi needs to calm down Swish and remind him he doesn’t need a homer here, just a nice hit. He is trying way too hard to get his first homerun.

  160. rr212 April 28th, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    Great ab there. Jackson is notorious for gettin wild. Maybe swish breaks out here?!?!? C’mon SWISH!

  161. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    c’mon Nick…you can at least walk be patient out there

  162. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    “A Rod was just unreal at the plate at the beginning of the season, look at him now.”

    That’s what happens when you notice that no one else in the lineup is doing anything. You try to do it all yourself.

  163. Nick in SF April 28th, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    Kaat just played ‘due for a home run’ card.

    he can’t do it.
    just keep walking.

  166. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:04 pm

    worst that could happen…home to 1st dp….will take anything else

  167. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    Again, he swings at ball 4.

  168. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    Shouldn’t have swung at that one

  169. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:05 pm

  170. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    hallejullah!

  174. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 8:06 pm

    The only reason Swisher didn’t swing at that was because it almost hit him.

  175. Carlo April 28th, 2011 at 8:06 pm

    Glad he walked there because that absurd 3-1 swing really aggravated me.

  176. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 8:06 pm

  178. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 8:06 pm

  180. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:06 pm

    Yes thats the point. You deride others for talking about Yankee mortality then launch into your own post re: the offense/posada. We’re all (most of us) yankee fans talking about the team.

  181. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    man i thought he had that one

  182. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    You can only hit it hard…

  183. Nick in SF April 28th, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    Homer haters happy?

  184. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    Cano should have tried to hit that for a HR instead of a nice line drive.

  185. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    damn thought that was going to be out of the park for Robbie

  186. rr212 April 28th, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    I prefer a single or a double or a triple…

  195. Nick in SF April 28th, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    I didn’t know (per Costas) there there is an actual MLB rule that prohibits managers from posting to social media sites 30 minutes before and after games.

    Ozzie is in trouble.

  196. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    Costas is cracking me up

  197. RS April 28th, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    Homeruns are good. All that easy jogging around the bases means the players are less prone to injury

  198. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    why has alex suddenly stopped hitting?

  199. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    ———————————————————————

    Did not knock Po, just gave an opinion as to this year after last.

    You, on the other hand, knocked Jeter at the beginning of this blog and he’s not even in the game !

    Your “expert” opinion is no more valuable than anyone’s. Got it ?

  206. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    why has alex suddenly stopped hitting?

    His balls are getting fielded. Its luck. He has hit the ball hard a few times with nothing to show for it.

  207. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Jackson and the pitching coach had someone of a heated exchange during the change of innings. My guess is that the pitching coach told Jackson to stop sucking. :P

  208. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    Did not knock Po, just gave an opinion as to this year after last.

    Jeter is much worse this year than last year which was worse than the year before, father time is catching up to him.

    This has been the basis for everything I’ve posted re: Jeter since 09. So whats your point? You’re allowed to do it but I’m not because you love Derek Jeter and want to marry him?

  209. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 8:14 pm

  211. Carlo April 28th, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    Yeah Mick, ozzie knows about lohud but when he signed on, a special group of 3 posters, who all share the same views on every issue, told him he knew nothing about baseball so he left.

  212. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    told him he knew nothing about baseball so he left.

    heh, he is the guy who has the white sox leading the league in caught stealings and sac bunts while the offense struggles to score a run and also bats juan pierre leadoff constantly despite his suckitude :)

    These guys have to stop swinging at anything in sight. The approach against them right now is get to 2 strikes and then throw it in the dirt. Hopefully it passes quickly but it’s hard to watch.

    So, it’s irrational to give opinions and make predictions ? You really should stop being a “know it all.”

    What? How did you get that from my point? Its not irrational, what? How? I am saying you can’t yell at people for discussing Jeter then you yourself do the same thing to Posada. It makes no sense.

    Dear Yankee hitters,

    I know this might be much to ask, but can you please refrain from swinging at ball 4? A rule of thumb is if the ball is extremely close to the ground, chances are it’s not a strike. Please confine your swings to balls that are up and out over the plate.

    Thanks.

    Signed Yankee fans everywhere!

    I’m still not over this guy makin those plays the other night

  257. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    it seems that a few groups of 3 have left the building

  258. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    the circle change, ah yes

  259. Carlo April 28th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    It annoys me that CC has more rolls in his neck then we do hits.

  260. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    “I’m still not over this guy makin those plays the other night”

    Neither am I. When the Sox get back to Chicago, I’m going to run him over with my bike. :)

  261. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    Get this out then call the game

  262. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    cc keeps puttin up goose eggs

  263. kd April 28th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    cc is a beast. he’s just pounding the strike zone and eat innings.

  264. rr212 April 28th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    How BOUT some HITS?!?!?

  265. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    CC has settled down. Those first two innings looked like he was going to struggle, but he got his act together.

  266. Carlo April 28th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    We can just count down the outs now until we can lock it down with soriano.

  267. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    looks like rain, heh jerky

  268. Irreverent Discourse April 28th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    jerkface – So you’d excuse Jeter for not getting infront of a ball but scold Nunez?

    No. No I would not. See what jumping to conclusions gets you?

  269. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    looks like rain, heh jerky

    Global warming.

  270. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    No. No I would not. See what jumping to conclusions gets you?

    You said as much, ole-ing a ball is fine despite it being the product of poor position.

  271. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    game called on account of global warning
    nice touch

  276. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    Posada! I mean, Gardner!

  277. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    HR Totals: Gardner: 3 Jeter & Swisher: 0

  278. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    Gardner line drive bomb.

  279. Carlo April 28th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    Yes! Another home run. Everyones favorite!

  280. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    Maybe Gardner has been going for 40?

  281. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    SLG by the SS!

  282. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    nunez pipps one

  283. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    Yes! Another home run. Everyones favorite!

    -

    That would be a double/triple in other stadiums! Can’t help where you play :)

  284. Tom in N.J. April 28th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    Bottom of the lineup :mad:

  285. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    Nunez has 1 less XBH than Jeter in 80 less PA

  286. rr212 April 28th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    Now that fool decides to mis-play a ball? UGH! Ill take the double now thoughh just very ironic.

  287. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    what!!! Gardner hits a HR

  288. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    Question: Have we seen Jeter hit a ball that hard all season? :P

  289. LGY April 28th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    Those last 2 at bats were awesome

  290. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    40 is a magic #

  291. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

  292. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    So, it’s irrational to give opinions and make predictions ? You really should stop being a “know it all.”

    What? How did you get that from my point? Its not irrational, what? How? I am saying you can’t yell at people for discussing Jeter then you yourself do the same thing to Posada. It makes no sense.
    ===================================
    Last post on this for me. I did not knock Po ! I’ve always had the highest regard for him. Just gave an opinion and prediction that he wouldn’t be the DH needed by Yanks this yr. and I did so in the off season when it was said that he would be the DH. As I said, it was all about his last yr. of contract. IMO. Fair enough ?

    Another prediction : He won’t quite make it to the HOF. Wish he would though !!!

  296. LGY April 28th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Those last 3 at bats were awesome

  297. Carlo April 28th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Gardy is looking to join the 40 home run 40 caught stealing club. Its very prestigious.

    This is what I’m talking about. Lacing bullets, merry go round baseball.

  298. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    jerkface – we were talking about hard hit balls that you dont have much time to react to, no? something that is on you one hop in a step or two at best.

  302. Chris W April 28th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    Gardner jump-started the offense! What a little spark plug! :P

  303. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    I really love this lineup!

  304. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Yay!@!!! Finally Swish gets a hit and an RBI

  305. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    I think everyone can be pleased with the offense this inning.

  306. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    with nobody watching swish gets a hit and meaningless rbi

  307. rr212 April 28th, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    erkface – we were talking about hard hit balls that you dont have much time to react to, no? something that is on you one hop in a step or two at best.

    Some would say Nunez did a good job to keep that scorcher on the infield, would save a run if a guy was at 2nd.

    “I think everyone can be pleased with the offense this inning.”

    Only if they continue it against whatever bum Ozzie brings out of the pen. :P

  313. LGY April 28th, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    Nunez has the same amount of extra base hits against RHP as Jeter does.

  314. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    Interesting point re: Gardner that Ben Shpigel pointed out and I just verified on mlb.tv, Gardner finished with 1 hand instead of 2 on his HR, maybe trying to go back to what worked last year?

  316. Irreverent Discourse April 28th, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    jf – it was hit right at him and he didn’t move, the ball bounced off his glove between his legs and hit his chest. lets not get fuzzy about the details here.

  317. blake April 28th, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    Why couldn’t Lillibridge have played terrible outfield the other night…..nice AB’s this inning.

  318. Chris W April 28th, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    “Yankees hit for the cycle in four consecutive batters.”

    That’s fantastic. I hadn’t even realized that. I hope Jayson Stark takes note.

  319. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    we are up by 4 runs that was not meaningless from Swish

  320. Carlo April 28th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    Yes – I’m joking. I didn’t even have anyone specific in mind. I’ll throw a group of 3 together if you want me to. I’m not familiar with enough people here to even know who thinks about what how.

  321. ac1 April 28th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    yankees are awake!

  322. blake April 28th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    Cano is getting locked in….he just hits laser after laser

  323. Chris W April 28th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    I love Cano’s hitting approach. 0-2, fastball, WHACK. He makes it look absurdly easy.

  324. O.j April 28th, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    Did i just see Garnder swing with one hand? Has he given up on the twohanded?

  325. Carlo April 28th, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    Face – I have been clamoring for him to go back to last years swing since week 2 of the year. The new swing is a mess.

  326. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    i kinda thought when the sox messed up the baserunning in the first inning that they blew thier best chance to win the game. not only should lillibridge not go home on that grounder to alex, but the guy staying on 2b while they applied the tag at the plate really cost them. of course that thought never crossed michael kay’s mind…

  327. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    cano is not as disciplined as last year, must be trying a new approach

  328. hillbillyshakespeare April 28th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    classic AROD HR spot

  329. blake April 28th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    Why not go back to what worked last year if you’re Gardner…..

  330. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    I think they’re trying not to hit HR

  331. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    Alex thought that was gone.

  332. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    an eruption out of nowhere

  333. Salliedogs7 April 28th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    A-Rod bomb.

  334. blake April 28th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    That’s the same play Lillibridge caught the other night…..now we know Quentin wouldn’t have caught it! :(

  335. mick April 28th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    lillibridge makes that catch

  336. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    welp the white sox defense looks as equally bad in this inning as they have looked good in rest of series

  337. hillbillyshakespeare April 28th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    close enough, he loves those low pressure high volume spots

  338. Salliedogs7 April 28th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    Still no outs.

  339. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

  347. blake April 28th, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    Martin is just on everything….even when he makes outs he’s having really good swings. I’d like to see him hit 2nd some against lefties.

    jf – it was hit right at him and he didn’t move, the ball bounced off his glove between his legs and hit his chest. lets not get fuzzy about the details here.

    I’ve just re-watched it, hard smash that bounced right up into his chest and then trickled down to his feet. It launched from 3 feet infront of him into his chest.

  355. SportsGeek April 28th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    Q.
    Which Yankee has the most home runs in the last 6 games?
    Hint.

  367. blake April 28th, 2011 at 8:57 pm

  368. kd April 28th, 2011 at 8:57 pm

  371. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    Because FOX and TBS wouldn’t know good broadcasting if it punched them in the ear.

  372. Carlo April 28th, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    May have to root the orioles in now. Have a good night everyone. Grab 2 of 3 from toronto and make this a 4-3 homestand.

  377. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    kay was okay as the color man on radio but he’s not lead announcer. cone is great, they need alot more of him. kenny is good. oneill and flaherty are as bad as any i’ve heard. lieter is barely passable but getting better over time.

  378. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    Kay blows.

  379. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    no

  382. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    Should have swung with 1 hand

  383. blake April 28th, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    I think Kay forgets he’s doing the Yankee game and goes into radio show mode too often….

  384. Carl April 28th, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    23 runs in CC’s last 2 starts

  385. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    Kays opinions are usually stupid, but he has a good voice and is very good at probing the color guys to get them to open up about a subject/give their advice

  386. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    but this is the yankees. the best announcers in the country should be doing yankees games. the yankees are all about being the best, getting the best talent. why so we have a collection of mediocre to terrible announcers?

  390. Asd April 28th, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    Every time I see this guy pitch, my head is suddenly filled with Death of a Salesman quotes…

    “Wily Ohman never made a lot of money,
    his name was never in the paper,
    but, uh… You know, like, attention could be paid.”

  391. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    If the audience’s sanity matters at all, Sterling only has a few years left. So it would be great to reunite him with Kay before he hangs it up.

  392. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    I think Pena faked that injury.

  393. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    id like to have mario impemba from the tigers do the radio with maybe jack curry as color man.

  394. blake April 28th, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    The Yankees could offer Costas more money than his other 12 jobs pay him

  395. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    Cone, Singleton, and Leiter are fine as color man.

  396. Asd April 28th, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    I’ll take Kay’s annoyance but with his voice any day over Costas’ voice. It just doesn’t fit the Yankees.

  397. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    im sure pena faked the injury. but the yankees do that once or twice a season too, and there is no way to prove a guy is faking it, so theres nothing you can do.

  398. blake April 28th, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    The ball was hit hard and bounced up to about his belt or a little higher. It’s not easy to field a ball hit like that. It’s not like it was an easy play so lets not be so hard on Nunez.

    Yanks struck out on the announcer free agent market as well. :sad:

    Kay is like Ponson.

  404. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    costas as lead tv guy with kaat switching off with cone as color guys would be a great tv crew.

  405. SportsGeek April 28th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    blake… you were right!!

  406. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 9:16 pm

    Kaat? If he isn’t talking about pitching, he isn’t making sense.

  407. blake April 28th, 2011 at 9:16 pm

    SportsGeek,

    new power hitter :)

  408. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    Costas is too much of a baseball purist to announce an AL team 140+ games. Some of his opinions are just as insufferable as Kays. Though he does have a good voice.

  409. blake April 28th, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    I love that commerical with Baldwin and Jim from the office.

  410. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    as much as i like kenny singleton,the orioles really should pony up and make him thier tv guy. he is still totally connected to thier organization and lives in maryland.

  411. blake April 28th, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    “it’s like being a huge fan of winning, which we do relentlessly”

    just like i stopped watching emeril.

  413. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    If you want to hear bad announcing, check out the Rangers new broadcaster. He plays up the whole texas thing despite being from the north and seems like he doesn’t understand baseball, its hilarious.

  414. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    so switch costas and kenny off in the lead chair, im sure costas doesnt want to do that many games, and kaat and coney doing color. everybody gets time off and there are several good combinations.

  415. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    Swish is back baby….two hits tonight!!!!

  416. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 28th, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    Swisher trying to get that bat to come alive.

  417. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    I care about competence, not a connection to the organization.

    Sterling once worked for the Orioles and Braves, and he’s not even competent.

  418. rr212 April 28th, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    Good to see swish have a nite

  419. kd April 28th, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    “robinson cano is rod carew with more power”

    might be the nicest compliment that kaat ever gave

  420. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    They need a better hitter as a color guy. Flaherty doesn’t cut it and Kenny, who I love, is fading in terms of offering cogent critical analysis of the game. He is just kind of mellowed out, fitting more as a PBP voice than a color guy.

  421. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    Swisher trying to get that bat to come alive.

    He was already hitting well righty :x

  422. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 9:22 pm

    Flaherty is the worst of the worst.

  423. BoJo April 28th, 2011 at 9:22 pm

    Gardner on pace for 20+ homers.

  424. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 9:22 pm

    I thought Torre was the first one to compare Cano to Carew.

  425. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    flaherty is kinda like valentine, both of them have a ton of baseball knowlege but terrible broadcast voices. valentime is too squeaky and flaherty has no pulse.

    Meanwhile, there is a potentially semi-hot woman sitting behind that old guy with the phone and they don’t even get a close up to see if it’s semi- or more or less.

  431. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    A-rod has been going the other way or up the middle the past week, but can’t buy a hit up the middle.

  432. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    i wasnt on earlier when kay and lieter were talking about flaherty’s ability to steal bases. he never struck me as a guy who could steal bases, so i looked it up, he had 10 career steals (posada has 20)!

  433. Patrick April 28th, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    Kenny and Bob Lorenz do PBP, O’neill, Kaat, Leiter and Cone do color.

  434. BoJo April 28th, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    Garner only 3 homers off team lead–obviously gunning for clean-up slot.

    Meanwhile, there is a potentially semi-hot woman sitting behind that old guy with the phone and they don’t even get a close up to see if it’s semi- or more or less.

    I was thinking the same damn thing. I guess the director or camera man thought the same too because they changed the angle of the shot and got the hot women :)

    I liked the one on the right

  436. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    met’s last chance to keep the streak alive, losing 4-3.

  437. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    O Neil is even worse, he is more interested in whats for dinner than whats on the field. It takes a lot of wrangling for him to comment on the game, even though I find his personality fun outside of the announcing aspect.

  438. Bo knows April 28th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    I think that was Joe Posnansky. Great baseball writer.

    Brett Gardner: “Slap singles hitters drive Buicks, power hitters drive Caddys–I want to drive a Ferrarri–what does that make me?!?–That’s right–a slap hitting, base stealing, power hitting, gold glove fielding, maniac stealing superstar.”

  441. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    Great thing about the early going is CC’s revitalized strike out stuff. He is King more guys than last 2 years.

    God damn Nunez.

  444. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    oniell is inexcusable. not only does he have nothing interesting to say, and not only does he drage kay down with him chatting about food and which millionaire is cheaper, but he is completly unprepared and obviously doesnt watch any baseball when he’s not announcing.

  445. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    Nunez, yer killing me. Though I disagree with Kay and Leiter, Nunez is not here just to play defense. If they only cared about defense, Pena would be up.

  446. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    Seriously, its the ball.

  447. syd_cash April 28th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    Hilarious

  449. LGY April 28th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    They really need to work with Nunez on throwing the ball.

  450. Captain Clutch April 28th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    Ouch, not pretty. Girardi should take CC out. With a 9 run lead there is no reason for him to still be out there.

  451. Carlo April 28th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    If I can’t stand flaherty but I don’t hate Kay, does that make me the dbag?

    My reason for not hating Kay is pretty simple actually. He’s a big Yankee fan. He legitimately cares about the team. I like that. I also respected the fact that he basically said Torre had to go, on the field after the ALDS elimintation loss to Detroit. I respected his blunt honesty.

  452. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    This will keep CC’s PC down, so there’s that.

  453. LGY April 28th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    Bring in Eiland to help Nunez like he did with Swisher.

    That is about the only thing Eiland is capable of.

  454. Carl April 28th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    Nunez it’s all your fault.

  455. Captain Clutch April 28th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    That inning was like a spring training game

  456. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    Nunez has what football people call closing speed.

  457. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:42 pm

  460. Pat M. April 28th, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    Torre was very good in the booth……He was doing the color when Reggie hit his 500 th dinger as an Angel…..

  461. Jerkface April 28th, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    I thought Pena should have gone north with team instead of Nunez anyway. I still think they might change places.

    If the purpose of the guy resting Jeter/Cano is to only provide solid defense, it obviously should have been Pena. Nunez is never going to be a gold glove at short. But he could end up as a regular short stop due to his offense/power/speed

  462. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    Of course, Pouncey doesn’t fall to the NYG.

  463. Ys Guy April 28th, 2011 at 9:45 pm

  475. Captain Clutch April 28th, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    Is Swisher going to swing for a homerun every at bat?

  492. jacksquat April 28th, 2011 at 10:00 pm

    No excuse for Nunez on the throw. However he has had some positives, like driving the ball and then beating out that infield hit.

  495. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2011 at 10:02 pm

    Based on the source of the controversies on this thread, I think it’s fair to say that the Yankees have A-Rod at 3B and Lighting-rod at SS.
